The Republican nominee questions physical stamina of his rival Hillary Clinton

Questioning the physical stamina of his rival Hillary Clinton, Republican nominee Donald Trump has suggested that the two US presidential candidates should undergo a drug test before the third and final presidential debate in Las Vegas next week.

“At the beginning of her last debate, she was all pumped at the beginning, but at the end she was all ‘take me down.’ She could barely reach her car. I think we should take a drug test. Anyway, I’m willing to do it,” Trump told his cheering supporters in New Hampshire.

Trump, 70, said he was willing to take the drug test while questioning the physical stamina of 68-year-old Clinton.

Referring to the 17 candidates he defeated in the primaries, Trump, who does not take alcohol, compared himself with an athlete and said every athlete takes a drug test before the competition.

“We’re like athletes, but athletes, they make them take a drug test. We should take a drug test. I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate because I don’t know what’s going on with her,” Trump said.

During the entire campaign, Trump has repeatedly alleged that Clinton lacks stamina required to be the president of the country.

The third Trump-Clinton presidential debate will take place on October 19 in Las Vegas.
